“James Fitzroy is headed home to Buffalo for Thanksgiving, but he and his family are struggling with very big questions about the end of life, the quality of life, and assisted suicide. Ames' novel is is funny, tragic, sad, and troubling all at the same time.”
-- Ann Reierson, Inklings Bookshop, Yakima, WA


James Fitzroy isn't doing so well. Though his old friends in Buffalo believe his life in New York City is a success, in fact he writes ridiculous taglines for a greeting card company. Now he's coming home on Thanksgiving to visit his aging father and dying mother, and unlike other holidays, he's not sure how this one is going to end. Buffalo Lockjaw introduces a fresh new voice in American fiction.
